Jim Ross has tried out various business ventures outside of the world of professional wrestling and now he has another project in the works.
The WWE Hall of Famer has owned two restaurants and has a successful line of barbeque sauces that is available online and in select retail locations.
During the latest episode of the Grilling JR podcast, the AEW announcer revealed he is opening a cannabis farm. He is partnering with his daughter and her husband as well as another person who is a lawyer for the new venture.
“My youngest daughter and her husband and I and another guy, a lawyer, are getting ready to start a cannabis farm. We’re looking at the working title of ‘Black Hat Farms.’ I bought some land in Oklahoma recently for the grow houses and all the things. That’s gonna be their life, that’s a big deal. She’s got a great job in marketing. She’s not gonna quit that, I wouldn’t even let her consider that. So, I’m excited about that for my kids.
“I figured out it was probably smarter to leave them things while I was alive and sort through all the heartbreak and the minutiae and the legal stuff, the probate courts and all these things after I was gone. It’s gonna be hard enough after I’m gone simply because I’ve got so much memorabilia. I need a clever, creative way to have somebody that knows what the hell they’re doing come into my home, inventory my memorabilia, then figure out the best way to pair it down.”
Ross recently announced that he has been diagnosed with skin cancer, which is something that he has battled with and beaten in the past.
